Let $\mathbb{T}$ be a time scale. Let $a,b \in \mathbb{T}$. The uniform distribution on the interval $[a,b] \cap \mathbb{T}$ is given by the formula $$U_{[a,b]}(t) = \left\{ \begin{array}{ll} \dfrac{1}{\sigma(b)-a} &; a \leq t \leq b \\ 0 &; \mathrm{otherwise} \end{array} \right.$$

Properties[edit]

Theorem[edit]

Let $X$ have the uniform distribution on $[a,b] \cap \mathbb{T}$. Then, $$\mathrm{E}_{\mathbb{T}}(X) = \dfrac{h_2(\sigma(b),a)}{\sigma(b)-a}+a,$$ where $h_2$ denotes the delta hk and $\sigma$ denotes the forward jump.

Proof[edit]

References[edit]

Proposition: Let $X$ have the uniform distribution on $[a,b] \cap \mathbb{T}$. Then, $$\mathrm{Var}_{\mathbb{T}}(X)=2\dfrac{h_3(\sigma(b),0)-h_3(a,0)}{\sigma(b)-a}-\left( \dfrac{h_2(\sigma(b),a)}{\sigma(b)-a}+a \right)^2.$$
